Immigration and the Movies

The Greater Washington Immigration Film Festival is taking place in D.C.’s Gala Art Deco Theater, October 23-26, 2014, and includes the Washington premiere of Who Is Dayani Cristal? Winner of the Sundance 2013 Cinematography award and nominated in the World Documentary Competition, Who is Dayani Cristal? has been described by the Hollywood Reporter as, “A deeply moving doc [which] finds a new way of making the immigration debate personal.”

We at the Murthy Law Firm and MurthyDotCom love the movies, but there is no reason you who live beyond Greater D.C., or who didn’t know about the event, should forego the festivities. We have compiled a list of films on our website that all include something about immigrants or immigration. This list is not exhaustive, by any means, but it includes many of our favorites. Use it to rent DVDs, or pull a selection from your own library. Make a streaming playlist on your phone, for private viewing, or get the whole family together with popcorn. However you choose to watch, we hope you will enjoy them, too! Whether art imitates life or life imitates art, we believe there is something to be learned from these stories – real and imagined – as they unfold on the silver screen, or in the palm of your hand.
